About Us

Welcome to PONG!

What is PONG?

The People’s Organization of Network Gaming, or “PONG” is a student organization at UW-Stout made up of students, alumni, and friends that are passionate about video games. PONG typically hosts 4 LAN Party events per calendar year, in the Memorial Student Center (MSC) on UW-Stout’s campus. These LAN events are run by PONG’s executive board, but also with the help of members of the organization. These LAN events last for up to 48 hours and include activities such as events, group photos, prize drawings, and tournaments.

Do I have to be a PC Gamer?

Absolutely not – PONG accepts all forms of gaming, whether that be PC, console, board games, party games, and so on. If there is something you want to play (and it is school appropriate), bring it to the LAN. We have space for 300 members to bring up to a 32″ screen, as well as projectors in both the Great Hall and the Ballrooms. Some popular party games at LANs include Jackbox Party Pack, Smash Bros, and Rock Band. Above all, PONG was created to have fun; the more people come to play, the better time everyone has.
